Julia's sister gets murdered and she is the only one who thinks something is wrong. As the story progresses you learn more about Julia's relationship with her husband. Also, that Julia suffers from the same eye disease as her sister and she is going to go blind as well. Things really get moving when she starts questioning her sisters friends and neighbors about her sisters "mystery man". I don't want to say too much incase you are considering watching this movie and if I say too much it will give everything away considering the plot is pretty straight forward.
I'd say there were a few times during the movie where I didn't quite know what was going on but those were few and far between and I mean lots of movies have a few tiny plot holes so no major love lost there. I'm actually really glad this movie wasn't all horror and gore. In the 2 hours this movie was on, I really felt for the main character and how desperate she was. Like I said, the main actress Belen Rueda is so fantastic.
Simply put, I highly recommend this movie.
Finally going to be released here, this chiller from Spain is superbly crafted and the eerie Hitchcock-esque ambiance makes this a scary affair for me. The director really knows how to play a lot of tricks with your mind, you will never know what is the cause of all this until at the near end of this atmospheric thriller. Belén Rueda who played Julia and her twin sister, Sara is so magnificent in her double roles.
Don't let the subtitles ruin the fun in watching this Spanish flick. Make sure you dim the lights and open your eyes!
Belén Rueda is a great actress, and totally pulls off the character(s) she plays (A set of twins; one is blind and is murdered in the beginning, and the other, also slowly going blind, refuses to believe her sisters death was a suicide). If you loved her in The Orphanage as I did (and if you haven't seen The Orphanage I highly recommend it), you'll love her in this.
The story is very well developed, and it pays off at the end with a very exciting climax. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good thriller, and doesn't mind reading subtitles.
